<<l the threads so far could easily have been posted (and would likely have the same quality responses) on the REHP Board>>

They could have, but they weren't. Wonder why that is? When you have the answer to that question you will realize why this board deserves a shot at success. I for one am willing to help make it so.

FMO, I think I am much better at taking in stride the "bickering" that occurs on the REHP board. If the thread was started on the REHP board, would not people reply to it? I think they would have. I've seen very few (can't even recall one offhand) on topic post that was not dealt with in a helpful manner -even from the "worst" offenders. Heck, Galeno, despite all his hee-hawing, would offer helpfull posts. I think you did get dealt some bad card when it came to RE investing; however, I also was able to come up with my own opinions having heard both sides. Heck, I have the utmost respect for Intercst but still bought my house! He is just a bit stubborn on his view on RE but the average reader can see through that and make their own judgement! I mean, people seeing FI/RE are not meek!!!

I'm not rooting for the demise of this board. It's a "fav" of mine now. I still think the better path would be the creation of on-topic posts on the "parent" board. At this point in the game I've got the technical knowledge needed to RE; what I want is the inspiration, encouragement, and comraderie that this/these (RE Wannabe, MOOTFL, REHP) offer. Being a FIRE wannabe can be a lonely road!
